Good Hotel Guide Review

Along a rough track ‘with not a sign of habitation’, Jim and Hilary McFadyen have posted encouraging notices (‘You’re on the right road!’) to arriving guests. ‘You wonder if there’s anything at the end; what you find is a lovely white house in a very pretty garden,’ say Guide inspectors in 2016. The ‘large, rambling’ former croft is ‘completely isolated, but warm and cosy, with a good welcome’. ‘We loved it.’ Take tea and home-made flapjacks in the lounge (‘comfortable’ sofas, books, games, a large TV), then head to ‘clean, tastefully furnished’ bedrooms. ‘Though compact, ours was comfortable, with a good shower in the bathroom. Nice touches: a quirky teapot, local guides, a container of emergency sewing supplies.’ Hilary McFadyen’s ‘delicious’ family-style dinners are ‘competently’ served in the ‘attractive’ dining room. ‘The hosts were happy for us to have friends join us for dinner. Hilary sent us the menu in advance, we brought our own wine, and had a lovely meal with home-baked bread and fresh vegetables.’ In the morning, a ‘well-cooked and -presented’ breakfast includes a daily special.

Guest comments

'We had the most fantastic stay. Hilary's cooking would put most chefs to shame and her vegetarian options were out of this world. Excellent value - I would recommend without hesitation ' - Jill Drury - October, 2016
'Everything just as already commended - we had one dinner - high quality, and innovative (like the breakfasts ); my wife can't forget the tomato and mint sorbet on her fruit salad starter. ' - Russell Birch - May, 2016
'We were entertained both by a peanut butter-eating pine marten on the terrace, and the company of our fellow guests at the communal dinner and breakfast, which worked very well. We particularly approved of the small fridge on the bedroom corridor, containing jugs of fresh milk; very thoughtful. ' - Frances Thomas - July, 2012
